The purpose of this study was to investigate shell growth performance in two thin-shelled pelagic gastropods from cold seawater habitats. The shells of Arctic Limacina helicina and Antarctic Limacina helicina antarctica forma antarctica are very thin, approximately 2–9 μm for shells of 0.5–6 mm in diameter. Many axial ribbed growth lines were observed on the surface of the shell of both Limacina species. Distinct axial ribs were observed on the outermost whorl, while weak or no rib-like… CONTINUE READING
